I heard about an animated series which is on Netflix called, “f is for family.” One of those recommendations of “you have to see it,” kind of things. And after seeing a small portion of the first show, I thought the show is a vulgar copycat version of the 70’s television show, “All in The Family.” Except I don’t exactly remember the 70s that way nor the show”All in The Family.”
These days vulgarity means big money. You don’t have to even be a good story teller or comedian as long as it is disgusting and/or shocking. How sad. Why have a good plot when you can blow something up or mutilate people instead? Yes, sometimes when I think we have hit the bottom of the barrel in creativity; something like this show comes along and proves me wrong again.
Have you ever thought about the onslaught of foul language, perverted nudity, and violence we allow to enter our homes each day? From games, to television shows it is a 24/7 free-for-all competition at who will capture our attention first. The more we watch or listen to, the more we become accustomed and then the language, scenes, and actions don’t seem so vulgar. And the more we become accustomed, the more it will take to get our attention next time.
In Luke 6:45 Jesus states, “The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks”
Basically we are what we say. So if you speak foul and vulgar language, along with obscene actions well…you are foul, vulgar and obscene.
Also in Matthew 12:36-37 we are told by Jesus, “I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
Isn’t it funny that Satan knows these things too? Not really. So, by getting us to speak, watch, and listen to vulgarity puts us one step closer to his realm and another step away from God.
Now I know people will make fun of what I have said. They will say things like, “If I watch f is for family, I am going to hell.” Maybe, maybe not. Thankfully, it is not my decision. My point is it becomes easier and more widely accepted. Once vulgarity and abuse is more widely accepted within your home, your home and family may become vulgar and abusive. Is that what you really want for your own children?
So where does the buck stop or should I say the vulgarity?
With us! By stopping the money flow to these shows. Write letters to the advertisers stating you will no longer purchase products from them, if they support these shows monetarily. And then stop buying their products! Oh, yes…stop watching or participating in these things! Talk to friends, family, and neighbors about how important it is to give our next generation a better start in life.
Something to think about anyway.
God Bless You!
God Bless America!
